“As one can see before me are INEC ballot papers from Khana. At about 12noon on Thursday, youths stumbled on some INEC officials in their office in Bori, where they brought in presiding officers and supervisors to thumbprint ballot papers and doctored results all in favour of PDP,” Abe said.
Abe called on the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega to urgently effect the redeployment of the Rivers State REC, Gesila Khan before the April 11 gubernatorial elections for showing executive recklessness in collaboration with PDP and the police and sued for the cancellation of the concocted elections, insisting that the votes counted in favour of the PDP were not cast by people in the state.
